A romantic Scottish wedding hideaway

As a romantic Highland hideaway in both winter or summer, Caisealrag Cottage at Crear is perfect for a couple with a king size double bedroom & en-suite bathroom. The cottage sleeps six guests in total with four in the separate annex.

Built in the 1880's, the traditional stone cottage has been sympathetically restored with an emphasis on comfort, warmth and understated luxury.

With a large open plan living area with warm stone floors, you can sink into deep squashy arm chairs and relax and unwind in front of the wood burning stove watching the vast expanse of ever changing skies through floor to ceiling windows.


Caisealrag Cottage


The original stone cottage sleeps two in a king size double bed with en-suite bathroom. We would be happy to act as your witnesses but if you choose to invite friends & family for all or part of your stay, we have two guest bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms in the annex. We have two pop up beds for children under 5 if required & a travel cot for babies.

There is no single occupancy charge for your guests. The annex is exclusively for your family & friends, however please note that as it is completely self contained with its own private entrance, it may not be suitable for children under the age of 14 sleeping alone. We suggest bringing a baby monitor. Dogs are very welcome if they promise to sleep in their own bed.


Wee Wedding Venue Facilities

Caisealrag Cottage is fully equipped to self cater stocked with the basics, with an electric hob, single fan oven, fridges & freezer. Towels are also provided. There is also a wood burning stove with plenty of logs, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, iron board, hairdryers, TV, Wifi & ipod dock.

As mobile coverage is patchy, a landline is also provided. If you need anything at all or have left anything behind, the Crear team are on hand 24/7 - from extra towels to advice on a walking route.

To respect your complete privacy, housekeeping will only be at your request.

Relax with a Swedish Massage at Caisealrag

Dinah at LLES Wellbeing is fully Insured & Qualified with a diploma in Swedish massage, which can be calming & relaxing or stimulating depending on your preference. She is also one of our very first Crear brides!

Please pre-book your hours of relaxation with Dinah directly. Email dtrita1@hotmail.com


Wee Wedding Hair & Make Up

Please consider that at Crear there may well be more than a wee puff of wind so your hair needs to be firmly pinned or in a style that will only improve when wind swept. What may work well inside where you are in control of the climate is not the style for a Crear bride!

The DIY option would be to have a professional make up lesson to discover what is the best look for you & invest in some luxury products that will last longer than your wedding day.

Great Places to Eat

For freshly caught seafood landed daily in the fishing village of Tarbert, try the Starfish Restaurant, the Sea Bed Restaurant at the Anchor Hotel & the Seafood Cabin at Skipness Castle.

A stunning drive down the Kintryre peninsula to Southend is so worth the journey when you taste the delicious cakes at the Muneroy Restaurant & Tearoom.


Food & Drink

Lochgilphead is the nearest town with a Co-op supermarket as well as a deli, butcher, greengrocer & fishmonger in the main street. We can advise on where to buy freshly landed seafood in Tarbert.

On your way to Crear you will drive past the original Loch Fyne Oyster bar which has a fabulous shop of local produce as well as oysters & salmon. Our local brewery, Fyne Ayles is just before it.

Crear is fully licensed if you would like a little refreshment during your stay. We are also very proud of our Crear Whisky to enjoy a dram & take home.

What to bring

If you plan to marry on the beach, flip flops in summer & wellies in winter are handy to negotiate the pebbles before popping on your heels! A brollie can also be handy.

In summer don't forget the sunscreen & your swimsuit. In winter we also suggest a wrap to keep you warm if your winter wedding is outside & long johns are a cosy option under your dress.

If you plan to explore the great outdoors, bring boots or wellies, binoculars if you have them, a bird book & an ordinance survey map, bikes, canoes, kayaks, surf boards, golf clubs ..........

We had such a wonderful few days at Crear & leave with many treasured memories. We had a beautiful beach wedding that was everything that we hoped it would be.
